“I’m back like the future, n—a/ Quan you the future n—a/ Don’t confuse me with Future, n—a/ Pockets fat retribution, n—a,” Rich Homie rapped on “A N—a,” a track that unexpectedly hit the Internet in October. When the song was posted, many blog sites advertised it as a Future diss, but Quan says that wasn’t his intent.
“In that, where did I diss Future? I never dissed him. I never disrespected him as a man,” Quan said on Wednesday (November 20) when he appeared on “RapFix Live.” “I never disrespected him as a man, but, you know, blogs will take stuff and blow it out of proportion.”
Quan says that he recorded the song in Gucci Mane’s studio in Georgia and then to his surprise found that it surfaced on a joint mixtape with him and Gucci titled Trust God F— 12. “I hadn’t heard the song since then, so when it came out on Gucci Mane’s mixtape, I didn’t even know me and Gucci Mane had a mixtape out,” he said. “I just heard the song and I started laughin’.”
Quan insists that he wasn’t attempting to belittle Future, but instead was just venting about the comparisons the two get due to their ATL roots and sing-song style of rap. “That’s like in every interview you go in, the first thing they ask you, ’Well you know you sound like Future’ before you even ask me how I’m doin’,” he said. “So that’s one of those songs… you got a lot goin’ on you just need to express yourself.”
